I have a SCX-4200 MFP, quite similar to yours, and this is my udev rule:

ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTR{idProduct}=="341b", MODE:="0660", GROUP:="lp",

The product is different, obviously, but note the added environment
variable. I cannot remember why I put it there, but hey! there it is, and
it works.

$ scanimage -L
device `xerox_mfp:libusb:002:002' is a SAMSUNG ORION multi-function
